TONGANOXIE -- The Baldwin High School boys' basketball team's season ended here Saturday night in a thrilling Class 4A sub-state championship game.

Baldwin climbed back from a seven-point deficit several times, but in the end fell short. BHS lost 41-39, despite a last-second shot by senior Blake Wieden.

The Bulldogs took advantage of late free throw misses by Piper, but were never able to take the lead.

Baldwin ended the season 17-6. There will be a story on the Bulldogs' sub-state run in Thursday's Signal.
